Stuffed karela

The thought of a stuffed spicy karela with daal is mouth watering.I just love this vegetable though it is so bitter. Its a very nutritious vegetable and good for diabetes. Here is one made healthier and sweet and sour , just the way I like with even a left over rotis from the previous day.....divine food!

3 Karelas scraped,slit and cut into 3 inch pieces( keep the scrapes for stuffing)
1/2 tsp haldi
1/2 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 spoon garam masala
1 tsp crushed saunf
2 tsp amchur powder
2/3 tbsp oil
1 walnut size jaggery grated
2 tbsp flax seeds

Apply salt to karelas and the scrapings and keep for 30 mins.
Squeeze the water out and keep aside.
Mix scrapings with all the dry ingredients.
Fill them well in the karelas.
Heat oil and put karelas and cook on low heat , turning them well so that it cooks and colors on all sides.
Poke to see if they are cooked well and serve.
